TEXT—When I cry unto thee then shall
mine enemies turn back: this I know;
for Gcd Is for me.—Ps. 56:9.
David, the sweet singer of Israel,
has set down for us In the expression
of his own emo-
tions and expe-
riences the heart
of the believer’s
comfort and assur-
ance. The Psalms
contain the voice
of the spiritual
life of one who

midst of a world
opposed to him.
In the above text
there is much of
comfort and as-
surance for the
one beset by the
foes of righteous-
ness and truth.
The Need of Safety.
This psalm declares in the second
verse “they be many that fight against
me” and this is echoed by every Chris-
tian’s heart. The world with its in-
finite variety of subtle temptations,
adding huge stores of fuel to the pride
of life, appealing in such crafty ways
of the Christian’s natural self; the
flesh with its never-ending tug and
pull drawing one in multitudinous
ways to its desires and the devil with
his unnumbered wiles and devices
leading into the avenues which appear
so good and even religious, which yet
are the paths toward death. Numer-
ous indeed are the hosts of enemies.
Malignant too these enemies are offers
ing no quarter, showing no mercy but
as this psalm says they “would dally
swallow me up.” They are as persist-
ent as they are numerous and malig-
nant. There is no respite from their
attacks; they are “fighting daily,” con-
tinually. Surely there is need of safety
for the Christian in the midst of these

I. The Stupidity of Selfishness, (vv.
30-32). Jesus with his disciples Is on
his way to Capernaum for the last
time. He is soon to leave for Jerusa-
lem, where he is to die on the cruel
cross for the world’s sins. He still
seeks the way of retirement in order
to be alone with his disciples, his ob-
ject being to lead them into the appre-
hension of the meaning of the cross.
The teaching which was interrupted at
Caeserea by Peter’s rebuke is now re-
sumed, and with definiteness he de-
clares the future event as already
1. “The Son of Man is delivered into
the hands of men.”
2. “They shall kill him.”
3. “He shall rise the third day.”
While pressing upon them contlnu
ously the fact and necessity of the
cross, he never failed to show them
the bright side—his triumphant vic-
tory over death In the resurrection.
The hearts of the disciples were so
steeped in selfishness that they failed
to understand his teachings. If the
disciples had more definitely attended
to his teaching concerning the cross,
they would have been better prepared
for the hour of temptation which was
so soon to overtake them.
II. The Wrangling of Selfishness,
1. The searching question (v. 33).
The omniscient Christ knew the se-
crets of their hearts. The fact that
the disciples were wrangling about of-
ficial position while the Lord was fac-
ing humiliation and death for them
Since the day of the caveman, who

our coffee unroasted.

seems to permit us to go on fighting j an(j the whole world, shows how cora-
wlth our own strength, struggling with | pietely the Lord was alone in his sor-
our weakness, striving to win in the
unequal strife until we come one of old
to the end of self and self’s power and
cry “O wretched man that I am.” But
while he permits this, it is only that he
may lift us up in victory and makes
us superior to all the attacks however
bitter and hard pressed they may be.
It has been well said that “the end
of self is God’s beginning” for “when
I am weak then am I strong” Strong
no longer in the power of my own res-
olutions and the force of my will, but
strengthened with the might of the
God who is omnipotent. When the
Christian comes to the end of self,
with his back to the wall and with a
realization of his insufficiency, then
he cries to the almighty one and finds
swift deliverance from all his foes.

tian may know that when he cries
unto the Lord, then will his enemies
turn back. Not merely because he is
a good man, not because he Is a spe-
cial favorite with high heaven, not
because he has some special Influence
with God but because God has said,
T will never leave thee, I will never
fail thee.” ’
The Cause of Safety.
The cause or reason of the believer’s
safety does not depend on the bellev- j
er’s own strength nor ability, but In
the simple fact that God is for him.
God was for him when Christ died for
him upon the cross. The less is al-
ways included In the greater and “He
that spared not his own son. but de-
livered him up for us all. how shall
he not with him freely give us all
things?” Rom. 8:32.
God was for the believer when
Christ died, he was for the believer
when salvation was bestowed, he was
for him when he was brought Into the
family of God and being now one of
the father's children In Christ. God
will be for him In the time of danger
to provide safety from all his enemies.
Oh. that the children of God might
learn to believe “when I cry unto tbee
then will mine enemies turn back:
this I know; for God la for me.”
for zeal for Christ.
2. Whom to tolerate (vv. 39-41).
(1) Those who are casting out devils
(v. 89). We should really satisfy our-
selves that supernatural works are be-
ing done. Are demons being cast out?
However, this is not final, as there Is a
cupernatural work not of God.
(2) Those who. are not doing this
work In Christ’s name (v. 41). Any
worker going forth In tho name of
Christ, and for the glory of Christ,
should be given Godspeed. If he la
doing a good work, even though not In
your way, or If not a member of your
church or school, “Forbid him not."
IV. The Awful Issue ef Selfishness,
Selfishness results In ruin to others
(v. 42), and also to the individual (w
43. 45 and 47). In either case the is-
sue Is eternal torment in hell. Selfish-
ness Is opposed to God. and that which
Is opposed to God must be eternally
separated from him. Self-renuncia-
tion should be so complete that we
should be willing to nbandon the most
necessary and lawful things In life-
hands, feet and eyes—when thpy be-
come occasions for stumbllo* either ta
ourselves or to others.
